Re: North Vancouver

New location - 235 East 8th Street near St. Georges Avenue

2 'Akebono' with very large upright trunks, branches start at about 6-7 feet high.

Would anyone know what cultivar would be used on the trunk portion of these trees to produce such an upright and sturdy trunk?

Re: North Vancouver

New location - corner of E. 8th (600 block) at Grand Blvd East

Mature 'Akebono'

I had my eye on this location over the winter as the trunk of this tree does not look grafted from a distance so I was hoping it was a 'Somei-yoshino'. But up close the trunk does look somewhat grafted and the petal has an extra incomplete one - so I guess it is an 'Akebono'. I haven't seen many "Somei-yoshino' cherries in North Vancouver - I live in hope....

'Akebono'.

Nice photos - I'll check to see if they're favourites - they look like places people would like to visit.

Re: North Vancouver

Many cherry trees in 20~50% bloom, but i am not so sure that is Akebono or Somei-yoshino. They locate in Tempe Cresent.

Tabular to spreading tree.
5 petals mid pink colour - blossoms are smaller than a penny.
Update for 2013 season: This older Whitcomb is around 20% in bloom.

Re: North Vancouver

The Tempe Glen Dr trees are 'Shirofugen'. The Tempe Knoll Dr trees are a very attractive planting of 'Amanogawa'.

Very large 'Ichiyo' 348 East 17th Street near Ridgeway North Vancouver

I literally just put away my Ornamental Cherries in Vancouver guide on the bookshelf today as I thought I'd seen all the varieties blooming on the North Shore this year... until I drove past this gorgeous very large tree!

It is in full bloom earlier than the 'Shirofugen' locally and the petals are almost 5 cm in diameter.

The green leaves accent the soft pink petals which I can only describe as looking like the colour of swirling pink cotton-candy - perhaps not scientific or botanical but that is what comes to mind.

Added location to map.

Re: North Vancouver

40 or more 'Kanzan' trees in bloom in the 100 block West 8th Street near the Anglican church and around the corner onto 13th Street. Popular with all ages today :)

Re: North Vancouver

8 well cared for 'Shirofugen' trees on the SW corner of West 8th Street at Chesterfield. They are properly spaced apart and planted with a wide enough area around the trunks so that the lawn mower doesn't get close enough to damage the base of the trees - they seem very health and happy!
